6.0002 Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science
6.0002 Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science (Fall 2016, MIT OCW). Instructors: Prof. Eric Grimson and Prof. John Guttag. 6.0002 is the continuation of 6.0001 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Python and is intended for students with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems and to help students, regardless of their major, feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class uses the Python 3.5 programming language. (from ocw.mit.edu)
|Lecture 01 - Introduction and Optimization Problems|
Instructor: Prof. John Guttag. Prof. Guttag provides an overview of the course and discusses how we use computational models to understand the world in which we live, in particular he discusses the knapsack problem and greedy algorithms.
